I mentioned the fact that those applications ran concurrently because, at the
current time, I cannot see them all at the same time. I am constantly toggling
through the applications, as they will not all fit on the screen together.

Ergonomics doesn't matter to this company at all, only productivity. To
illustrate, I use a common business desk to which a keyboard drawer has been
attached (I had to argue for the drawer). My mouse still sits on top of the
desk along with the processor, monitor, phone and printer. I got a new(old)
chair last week, after a week of sitting at a chair with a broken back, for
almost a year. I only got the chair because I went into a rant one day, and I
think they were afraid I would leave.

So, I know that monitor size does not affect performance of applications, but
it might improve the performance of TW if I can see at least half a page
legibly at one time in FrameMaker (at least), and perhaps some of the other
applications as well.
